COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) - Ancient Olympia has become Colorado Springs' seventh sister city.

The ruins near the municipality were the birthplace of the Olympic Games, and Colorado Springs houses the U.S. Olympic Committee.

A ceremony marking the agreement is being signed Tuesday by mayors Steve Bach and Aristideis Panagiotopoulos.
